Published: Friday, December 7th 2012
(Reuters) - The S&P 500 eked out only a slight gain on Friday as weak consumer sentiment data offset enthusiasm from a better-than-expected jobs report, while the Nasdaq slipped after some investors resumed a sell-off of Apple shares.
The Dow Jones industrial average rose 53.67 points, or 0.41%, to 13,127.71. The Standard & Poor's 500 Index gained 1.80 points, or 0.13%, to 1,415.74. The Nasdaq Composite Index fell 15.55 points, or 0.52%, at 2,973.72.
